When you see our ads on a third  party website or apps, we or third party services we engage for this  purpose, may collect information your browser or mobile app makes  available when seeing the ad (e.g. ip-addresses, referral URL, browser  details, timestamp of request). Third party websites or apps may also  allow us to measure the success of our ads on their websites.
